First Alert Forecast: quintessential weather as Autumn arrives Tuesday

Your First Alert Forecast from Mon. evening, Sept. 21, 2020

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Good Monday to you! Your First Alert Forecast features the autumnal weather you might see in a fall clothing catalog. Expect a mostly sunny spell across the Cape Fear Region through at least midweek. Temperatures will reach afternoon highs mainly in the airy lower 70s after crisp 50s early. Towards the end of the week temperatures will trend mores seasonable with highs in the upper 70s and lows in the 60s.

By the end of the week, remnant moisture from Tropical Storm Beta will inch closer to the Carolinas. This will not be similar to what the remnants of Sally was like here last week. Of course we will continue to fine tune your local forecast, check back for daily updates. Tropical Storm Paulette has regenerated in the far eastern Atlantic and will meander over open water.

Also a blessing to be able to say in September: the Carolinas have no definable tropical storm threats in the next several days. Swell from offshore storms like Teddy, however, will continue to agitate surf, help generate rip currents, and contribute to minor to moderate bouts of tidal flooding. Please stay aware of these saltwater impacts!
